Emission limits set on oil, gas firms

From Times Wire Reports

Facing federal pressure because of a growing ozone problem, the state approved the first-ever statewide emission controls on the booming oil and gas industry. Members of the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission said the new rules would reduce emissions by 68% from tanks that collect the liquids and other byproducts. They will take effect in May 2008 if the Legislature approves them.
